. >>> police in michigan think they might have a lead on where jimmy hoffa is buried. a dying detroit man tells police he believes he saw hoffa's body being buried 35 years ago. investigators will take soil samples from beneath a detroit driveway to determine if a body is buried there. jimmy hoffa was last seen in 1975. despite a number of searches over the years, his body has not been found even when they built the new giants stadium which was the great rumor for so long. >>> today's deep dive. more evidence that money will not decide this race. four months there was hand wringing about high money donors and contributors that wrote big checks in 2008 would sit in the sidelines in 2012 and a big money deficit would make a difference in a tight presidential race. back in early february, the president reversed a long held position on super pacs signaling they should pony up and to democrats it was safe to ask for outside money themselves. he teased the decision in an interview with nbc's matt lauer. >> if you ask me would i love to take some of the big money out of politics? i would. unfortunatel
